Indonesia Super League
Persipura v PSPS 4-1 (Boaz Solossa 2, Ian Luis Kabes, Zah Rahan; Nguenheu) 17,572
Persiwa v Persija 2-0 (Eddie Boakay, Ferdinand Sinaga) 14,415
Remember Boaz? Lightning quick striker, before Irfan Bachdim tweeted his way into everyone's heart with pictures of his lunch in a Surabaya mall? Dropped by Alfred Riedl ahead of the AFF Cup he has enjoyed a good long rest and has continued where he left off. Scoring goals for fun. His brace against PSPS gives him 11 for the season and puts Persipura back on top of the table, 2 points ahead of Semen Padang with a game in hand.

Persitara v PSAP 0-1 (Moussa) 1,500
Persikabo v Persiraja 4-3 (Salim Alydrus 2, Cyril Tchana, Jibby Wuwungan; Fahrizal Dillah, Abdul Musawir, Erik Saputra) 4,756
Deja vu for Persitara. Last week against Persiraja they lost to a last minute goal. A free kick from the left was pumped high and a player at the back post ghosted in and netted from a difficult angle. Same thing today against PSAP. Same free kick, same end, same location, same back post and same result. Persitara concede and lose the game.
First defeat of the season for Persiraja in a high scoring game away to Persikabo with the wonderfully named Jibby scoring right at the death for the home team. Persiraja had two men red carded and on 64 mins Salim Alydrus made it 3-1. It seemed the leaders were dead and buried. However two goals in five mins dragged them right back into it until that oh so late heartbreak.
1 - Persiraja 9 7 1 1 20-11 22
